For a show that has a pretty typical storyline - fake relationships, hidden feelings, interfering parents - Marriage, Not Dating manages to set itself apart for one simple reason; it succeeds where so many other shows fail.

So while it has the zany, comedic overtones and the poignant moments that are a part of so many romantic comedies, the show never loses its heart and lets itself fall into melodrama.

There are misunderstandings, and interfering second leads that don't understand the word 'no'. There are the sudden personality turn arounds in the eleventh hour. But the main plot is always the main romance, the leads are consistent and there's no crazy noble idiocy from either of them. There's humour scattered throughout the entire run and almost everyone feels geniuine.

So while it does have some pit falls - the middle dragged a bit - for having an overall good storyline and great characters, this show is a win. And a treat to any romantic comedy fan.

I'm on episode 8 and I still don't get why everybody likes it.
I don't ship the main couple, I hate Jang Mi, she's stupid and a pushover. Basically I dislike all the characters so far.
I hope it gets better, otherwise I'll drop it.

Though the drama had some flaws, especially in the first few episodes, the latter part was amazing. I had so much fun watching it, the chemistry was great, and overall it really made me feel good, and isn't it what dramas should be about?

On a side note... There wasn't a single scene where Jinwoon wouldn't look good. He's so handsome it's ridiculous!

Yeon U Jin was great, really liked his acting, Seon Hwa was also very good! I didn't know she was such a good actress. :)) Han Geu Ru was the opposite. Really annoyed me and didn't like her... D:

Anyway, it is a great drama and recommend to everyone! ^__^

I wasn't really impressed after first couple of episodes. It was ok, but just ok. But later it was getting more and more interesting and I fell in love with the cast and whole story. This drama is really worth watching.
Just you have to get through first episodes :)

The drama was really fun to watch from the very beginning, but I have to admit it had some flaws, the plot began to drag in the episode 12 (2)

I loved it, not bc it's a love story, but because it focus on family and social matters and values. It's not a shallow drama if we realise the message it sells.
